My teaching methodology is based on the enstablishment of a good relationship with the student, adapting my way of training to age, level and different backgrounds and personalities. My aim is to understand what suits better the student, and giving him/her the correct advices.
I'm a really patient and joyful person, my principal goal is to let them have fun with what they are doing and discovering, in order to express at their best their own qualities and skills, as well as ideas through sounds.
We'll be focusing on both musical and technical aspects, fundamental in developing a solid and great potential either as a performer and a person, having an open discussion on every topic we'll speak about.
During my principal pedagogy study, I focused myself on the Leila Fletcher method, that I find really intuitive and gradual, for every kind of age and level, and basing on the behavior and the possibilities of the student, we'll be choosing the perfect repertoire to face together and grow with.
I'm Alessio from Italy and I have been playing the piano for the past 18 years.
Since I was little, my parents took me in family trips to discover the world together. We went to the Northern part of Italy, and while we were visiting a church, I seated on a chair and there was something there playing, a melody pervaded the whole place where I was. It was a piano playing, from a CD... and I stayed there waiting to listen until the end of that piece. In that moment, I literally fell in love with the instrument (I was 7 y.o.). As soon as I came back home, my family took me to private piano lessons because I was always singing that melody and, after few months of training, I passed the audition of my Conservatorie, in Palermo.
Under the guidance of my first teacher I discovered this wonderful world and we started this incredible journey that enriched me so much, as a person and as a piano player, leading me to my first piano competitions and masterclasses.
After 9 years, at the age of 17, I gave my final degree exam, with honours results , and few months later, after finishing my High School Diploma, I tried auditioning for the major Conservatory of Italian Switzerland where I was successful and finally begun my first Master's Program.
Later on, concluding my Master of Arts in Music Performance, I decided to embrace the pedagogy world that surrounds the piano, and so I got accepted to my second master program, Master of Arts in Music Pedagogy. In December 2018 before finishing my second year of my second master's degree , I decided to look forward to change environment and face the audition at the prestigious Royal college of Music in London, where I was subsequently offered a place with scholarship for both years 2019/2020 and 2020/2021. Nowadays, I'm going to finish my third Master here in London and beginning to start from the next year my very last step of my accademic trip, the Artist Diploma in Performance, specializing in Collaborative piano.
According to my personal musical background, all the teachers I have had over the years had a great impact on my musical soul, in different ways, and I couldn't ever be grateful enough for all the passion and knowledge they gave to me.
I'm deeply convinced that the right teacher can make the difference in how we experience and discover the art of piano playing, and how we get in close contact with our inner personality as well in life.
I've always been interested on learning at my best how to involve students discovering together this huge and beautiful world that music represents to me, and after being Teacher Assistant in Lugano (Switzerland) for two years, I've been working here in London with private students since September 2019, and can't wait to spread as much as I can the love that music brings to our souls and hearts!
Alessio Enea, Palermo (1996), began his studies at the Alessandro Scarlatti Conservatory of Palermo. From an early age he took part in national and international competitions that led him to obtain several awards, such as the "First prize" at the City of Caccamo Competition, resulting in the recording of a CD.

Alessio is a very kind, friendly and and thoughtful person. When I had him as my piano teacher he would always put extra effort into working on every small detail of my piece. He is also very sensitive and believes that it is very important for a musician to be able to convey strong emotions to an audience through music. This is what distinguishes him from other teachers. I really recommend Alessio to any pianist at any level.
Alessio is charismatic, patient and kind piano tutor, always making sure that my kids are at ease yet paying attention during their lessons. He inspires them by teaching them how to play their favourite pieces and makes piano fun! He also finds a good way to explain to them the basics by visualisation and stories which is very effective.
